Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Through ten theological and spiritual principles, Hunter leads pastors to vocational refreshment and to nourishing sources for understanding their pastoral call with a clarity that remains compelling and empowering throughout their ministry. He helps them to find the voice to speak the word of God in all of life's situations. "The pastoral vocation -- listening to the voice that calls and finding our voice to speak to the many and varied circumstances of parish ministry, " says Hunter, "is to be who you truly are and to live what you truly do with holy conversation."
